Product Description

Product Description

Kestrel and Rory are the very best partnership in Wester Fleet’s elite Mountain Rescue Team. They’ve trusted one another with their lives for five years. They’re closer than brothers – but Rory’s feelings for his handsome, daredevil partner are far from fraternal.

He knows better than to tell Kes the truth. Climbing partnerships are a delicate balance of love and practicality, and the Fleet MRT has a strict non-fraternisation code. Rory could lose everything by a confession. And Kes is an enigma – sometimes distant, sometimes seeming to crave the very devotion Rory longs to give him.

Kes is all set to become the MRT’s next leader. He’s a shoo-in for the job, except for his impatience with amateur climbers and his inability to hold his tongue. When he and Rory are given the job of guiding two important visitors across the Fleet range, it’s a test of his tact to say the least. But nothing about this mission is as it seems, and soon Kes is facing the most terrifying challenge of his life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 1 May 2013
By Random Brainwaves - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'd read some other books by this author and was impressed. This book is well researched for mountaineering but the interaction of the lead characters is not credible. I also found the book kind of short. Not worth it, does Kindle have a used book bin?

3.0 out of 5 stars Dispite the title, didn't fly too high 9 April 2013
By daveh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book only partially worked for me. Rory and Kestrel were strong characters, and I would have really enjoyed them more if I felt I got to know them better. Both seemed mono-dimensional. I never really felt I knew Rory at all and Kestrel (for me a dumb and really 'twinky' name--though I get the meaning) was distant.

I found the dialog confusing. There were large sections I needed to re-read because I just couldn't follow who was speaking. Whether it was bad paragraphing or lack of dialog tags, I just didn't follow large sections.

Another really huge irritation for me was the whole French sub-plot. While I know nothing about mountain climbing and am not a person who engages in high-trill adventures, I find it totally inconceivable that a supervisor would subject one of his team members in some 'test' that would in any way compromise his safety.

***Spoiler alert***
[Suppose Kestrel had become injured or heaven forbid lost his life because of a "psychological test" or to be more specific, a "trick." It would have been far more than tragic.
**********
The ending was romantic but went kind of flat. One moment they were chatting with the French duo; the next they were jerking each other off. Where did that come from?? Like...how about getting undressed first, or something.

While this story wasn't bad, it had potential, but it just didn't make it for me. Too bad.

3.0 out of 5 stars I think being a novella did not help this story 18 April 2013
By Sirius - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I READ IT AS A KINDLE LOAN.

Yes it has Harper Fox's trademark beautiful writing, it seemed well researched, but as much as I liked Rory and Kestrel, I never felt that I knew them well enough. I wanted to see Kestrel's feelings evolve more than I did, because his transition felt a little jerky to me.

And yeah, ending? I also want to say what the heck.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not to my Liking 14 May 2013
By CCDuke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am normally a huge fan of Harper Fox, but I did not enjoy Kestrel's Chance. I could see where the author was going with it and I truly think if the story had been longer and more fleshed out I would have liked it a lot more. It just seemed thrown together with possibilities of greatness that weren't given a chance.
It certainly won't keep me from reading more by this author though.

3.0 out of 5 stars It`s OK! 6 May 2013
By Rosita - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a solid 3 stars for me. I wanted to like it more. At the most simplistic level, it was just the story of how they fell in love. I was just left wanting a bit more. Overall though, I enjoyed it.
